Looking to buy a used Leaf. Doing so for 'green' reasons - so collateral inconvenience/time isn't a big factor. I do low weekly mileage, don't have a driveway but my small town is rich in having two Instavolt sites, each with two machines that are seldom used. My question is..does charging it on a 'rapid' every time and never on driveway have a significant negative affect on battery degradation? Or is that, statistically or anecdotally, not a huge concern I should be having?
Second question, if I'm allowed a two-fer-one....I'm thinking, rightly or wrongly, of a 24kwh, 3.3kw, 2014 onwards.... if I was to get Leafspy, how do I then know what's "good" or "bad" given age and mileage? Has someone created a graph or something with an axis for age and mileage and then a zone that says "If Leafspy is showing anywhere between 'this' figure and 'this' figure then thumbs up"? If not, how do I make a judgement...even when armed with readout, age, mileage and price?
Ending up buying badly because EV inexperience meant I had to rely on the seller's opinion is a scary thought and when I look at, say Autotrader, I think...how do I start in eliminating them down?
